Mate Crime Thematic Review - 'Derrick'
In April 2017 the BSAB received a referral requesting that the Bristol Safeguarding Adults Board consider whether the criteria was met for undertaking a Safeguarding Adults Review following the death of a man called Derrick Carr. In this instance it was agreed that the criteria was not met, but the case raised concerns about agencies’ knowledge and ability to respond effectively to Mate Crime and exploitation of adults with disabilities.
The BSAB agreed that a joint Thematic Review with the Safer Bristol Community Safety Partnership should be undertaken to ascertain whether there were practice issues in this instance and/or opportunities for development in the protection of adults in the city in this area.
